Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a great dinner at Kennedy's yesterday with a group of 44. The food and the service was great! It's hard to serve food to such a big group but the staff did a fantastic job! I really recommend this restaurant for having Fish...& Chips with a large group.More

We came on a coach trip to see the London lights and had supper here, 52 of us! The restaurant was efficient at serving us all and with a smile too! Excellent supper which included tea or coffee. Good clean toilets.

We were part of a large coach party, we’d visited Greenwich markets, then took a river cruise, followed by a look at the Christmas lights. Finished the evening with a fish / chip supper. I think the shop did really well to serve so many...coach customers with delicious hot food. Started with a glass of prosecco, then fish n chips with mushy peas, then tea or coffee, then a slice of cheesecake. Nice shop, friendly staff Wow – well done.More

I ordered a takeaway, large cod, in person. The operative repeated the order, large cod and said it would take 8-10 minutes. 15 minutes later the order appeared and I went home looking forward to the fish supper. 1st bite and I knew the fish...was bad. The fish itself was very salty (not the batter) which meant the cook tried to mask the rot with salt. Not only that it was haddock and not cod, which makes me suspect he had a rotten haddock which he should have thrown away instead of serving it to an unsuspecting customer. Before that I was such a great fan of Kennedys, both eat in and take out, both Goswell and Whitecross. But you know, after the experience on Monday 6 November, I vow never to eat at Kennedys again.More

Nothing but brilliant- made a point of saying thanks to the chef and a young lady who was serving as it was only 2pm. What an amazing chippy in the middle of Angel/Islington. Taste and potion was just perfect- thanks

We lunched here as part of a tour group. We arrived early but that didn't faze the staff. Lunchtime drinks while we waited for our fish and chips were served promptly and are very reasonably priced. Fish and chips were perfectly cooked. Thank you to...smiling staff for the warm welcome.More

I visited this restaurant with a coach party on 14th February seeing sights of London finishing with a visit to Kennedys for supper. We were assured by the coach driver this was the best place in london for fish and chips. What a dissapointment, do...not know what fish we were eating but it was not cod,very watery, the mushy peas were cold. Worst fish and chop shop I have ever eaten in.More

I recently visited Kennedys of Goswell Rd and had a really excellent meal of grilled salmon with salad and a few chips. Everything was great and the chef [ SOKOL ] who cooked this meal, followed my wishes exactly and he should be applauded for...his low-key approach regarding asking if everything was OK, unlike some chefs who shout loud enough for everyone in a restaurant to hear, and putting the customer in the position of having to agree through embarrassment. Sokol was a great example of how to be discreet and genuine, and along with BIBI who gave the best possible service in an equally discreet and very genuine way, both deserve to be greatly applauded. It is staff such as these two that make this restaurant what it is – great.More

in september 22 to early October we went to this restorant and the service and attitude by certain staf was disgusting it seems that one womem was doing most of the work and others were doing very little and ignoring cusomers who wanted attention. the...shaved head little chef seemed to do nothing but walk around the restorant and ignore customers He would then walk back in and say its nothing to do with me I dont work in the restorant and just walk off very rude there was lots of shouting from the kitchen by this man customers were complanning about the matter and the one women doing most of the work was rushed of her feet trying to manage. some customers just walked out or didnt come in staf like this little chef whoose cooking is not good over cooked and hard and sometimes cold, have ruined this place other chefs seem ok so many customers were saying they would not be comming back as there are other fish and chip restaurants in the surounding streetsMore

We rocked up before 12pm lunchtime on Wednesday 23rd March. There was 14 of us, it wasn't too busy and the staff were very accommodating and fixed the tables so we could all sit together. The service was impeccable and attentive. The food was amazing...and considering there was so many of us it came pretty quick and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely come back again.

When I visited I was greeted near the door by the manageress, BiBi who was exceptional in her dealing with many clients at the same time and with the quality of her service. The food was hot and correct, it was fresh and extremely tasty...and i could see BiBI, when not dealing with a custmer, walking around keeping an eye on everything and dealing with matters as they arose, just like a head waiter would do. This was enormously encouraging as it made me feel that I was really being looked after, which I was ! Just before I left I heard others stating as they left that they would definitely come again, after being said goodbye to by BiBi. I shall now make a point of going there whenever I'm around to repeat the pleasure of the fabulous food and equaly fabulous service given by BiBi and always accompanied by laughter and a giggle.More
